There is no future. There is no past. Do you see? Time is simultaneous, an intricately structured jewel that humans insist on viewing one edge at a time, when the whole design is visible in every facet.



This is a hell of a white flag lineup.

Lead-off Homerun! Good start for the A's

And... another one! Bad Verlander is best Verlander.

On the good side: Jose Bautista homers in the first inning for the second day in a row.

On the bad side: This loving strikezone...

Yesterday was a National holiday (Canada Day) and today is a getaway day because the Jays are heading to the west coast.

are there any rules that address the catcher blocking him leaving the batters box like that?

If he'd just run into him, would he have been called out for interference or would the catcher have been called out for impeding?

Yes the catcher would have been called out

So the Jays now have Gose batting third and Mastroianni batting fourth in a tie game. What the hell was Gibbons doing that inning. Why not just let Lind bunt? Why pinch hit and then have that guy bunt (badly)?

And why pinch run for Bautista with two outs? Wouldnt he likely score on any base hit anyway? Now we have arguably our two worst hitters in the middle of the lineup in a tie game.

their place in the lineup doesn't matter at this point?

Reyes and Melky have been pretty hot lately. Unless they're getting immediately pinch hit for when they come up to bat it could kill a rally pretty easily. And I'd much rather have Bautista and Lind coming up rather than Josh Thole or whoever they're gonna use to pinch hit. Can you elaborate why it doesnt matter at this point? Just trying to learn

Gibby if you wanna redeem yourself in my eyes, you'll sock him in his rear end in a top hat mouth.

Well yeah obviously you'd prefer Bautista and Lind, but the number they are in the lineup doesn't matter (3rd and 4th or whatever). Because by definition if you were just brought into the game you're going to be at the bottom of the order.
